I'll be watching it, but as entertainment rather than serious information about cars. I actually prefer Fifth Gear's style for that as I come away actually knowing something about real every day cars that you don't seem to get from Topgear much these days. Top fun and is also on series link for me.

absolutely... and i'm being serious! i've driven the stelvio pass before in my old e46 cab... the most amazing drive i've ever done, and that includes the St Bernardino pass, Amalfi coast, and the Milau bridge

So come on then, which was your favourite? The Lambo, Porker or the Aston???

I'd go for the GT3 RS, loving that Viper Green paintjob

Actually none of them really floated my Boat, I'd rather go for the 997 turbo...

I agree with them that the stripped down aspec doesn't appeal to me...

Not really when you have like 450+bhp on tap.

yeah i was a bit surprised that they even bothered to test that car. That image is pretty fun in its own sense though! If that ever happens, you could roll up next to the crash and say to the kid, "wow, tough luck, guess you should've gotten a car that has a real chasis instead of a bunch of puzzle pieces that don't fit together "

hahha you must be a real nice guy to let them ride in your car.

i would do exactly this...

say the quote, pop my car into neutral, rev all the way as if i'm trying to take off, then just say "oh, look at that, i'm still in neutral, but WHAT A NOISE!" then launch off!
